Reconstruction

Every act of creation is first an act of destruction.

—Pablo Picasso—

Today I did a different kind of portrait; depicting the wild parrots that fly around town. Since I haven’t been in the mood to illustrate, I went heavy on the effects.

I thought it would be cool to make it look like it was drawn or hand painted. The way the parrot was sitting made it awkward, and I wanted to get a close-up of his/her claws. So… I deconstructed and reconstructed.

I cropped the head and moved it down. Now it looks like there are two! No? 🙂
